"What a shame"
falcor26
For me this is a great subject (pleasure boats) example of which are seen too infrequently in the modeling world. This kit appeared to me to be a re-release of an older kit so my expectations of quality were not high. While there was less flash than I expected difficulty in construction was more than I expected. While assembling the four piece hull 1/8 gaps were not uncommon. Once I started on the cabin wall 1/4 gaps appeared. There are no alignment pins and the lugs and other obstructions on the plastic that are supposed to aid in assembly get in the way more than help. At times you will wish you had 3 hands during assembly. I would recommend this kit if you are looking to develop your skills in filing, filling and fitting (a bargain leaning experience at this price) or if you want to experience what plastic kits were like in the old days else I would avoid the frustration this kit will likely cause.

"Again, nice boat, Tough kit."
Bob A. (Dunmore Pa.)
Again , a good subject, as there are not too many 1/25 sport boats out there, but sadly, really worn molds, or something, cause like the '59 Coronado, this one is loaded with flash, and poor fit of parts. Hopefully Round2 will upgrade the tooling for these two kits in the future. Assembly is pretty much the same as with the Coronado, fitting , fileing, filling , etc. A real job to make it look like something. Excellent , if you are looking for a Challenge!! A little more detail below decks in the cabin would really help, as this area is readily visible on the finished model. The decals are nice Cartograph but some wood grain added to the sheet where required on the kit would be an added attraction to these kits. Not recommended for Novice, or even Experienced modelers, these kits until re-tooled, will remain in the realm of the Senior or Master Modeler.

 
"FLASH and ILL FIT ALERT"
marseamurphy
I've never seen anywhere near the amount of flash and it's thickness as well as the huge runners needing cutting connecting the parts in my 60+ yrs of plastic model making. You're gonna need a spruce cutter, X-acto knife and sandpaper boards, maybe a chainsaw might be good too. Chrome is like everywhere, even on/in inappropriate areas, like the WHOLE MOTOR...both of them. By the time you trim the flash and connectors off any chrome pieces, well you might want a chrome pen to touch up where the chrome was compromised. But in reality who's going to want two big pieces of chrome hanging out there? Oh, and the hull is about 5 pieces, not the usual one piece. A bottom, two sides, transom and part of the actual top deck. If this is a reissue of the 60s original, maybe some time should have been spent on cleaning up the original tooling. It will be a challenge for such a simple kit. Too much $$$ for what it is. UPDATE: I've decided to go from 2 star to 1 star. You'll also need lots of plastic body putty for the ill fitting hull joints and good luck getting a decent closed point where the 2 sides and bottom join at the bow. Rubber bands just slowly slide on all the curves while drying.

 
"Tough build"
no.1silverback
Strangely I enjoy testing myself on kits like this that many find frustrating. The parts are reasonably clean but the fit leaves MUCH to be desired. Don't start this one unless you're ready to a lot of puttying and sanding. If you fight your way through, it does finish out to a very sharp boat.

Comments

Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
